Biography:

Dr Karolina Pomorska is an Assistant Professor and Director of the European Public Affairs MA program at Maastricht University in the Netherlands. Between 2012 and 2014 she worked at POLIS, University of Cambridge, as a Marie Curie Fellow and she was a Research Associate of Sidney Sussex College. In 2011, Karolina was awarded an Intra-European Marie Curie Fellowship within the Seventh Framework Program to study the European External Action Service (EEAS) of the European Union as a multinational bureaucracy at the University of Cambridge. She focused on learning and socialization among diplomats. An important part of the project was to understand the implications of establishing the EEAS in terms of democratic deficit and accountability in European Foreign Policy. Previously, Karolina had studied the roles and attitudes of officials in the Council Secretariat General of the European Union and the national diplomats in the Council of the European Union. Among her research interests are also topics such as: informal aspects of policy-making and negotiations, Polish foreign policy, the policy of the European Union towards its Eastern neighbours.
